CfP: Coming to Terms with Gender. Contemporary Radical Right Politics and Discourses on Gender Rights, Migration, and Islam (Event, 03/2019, Bochum); DL: 15.02.2019

Freitag, Januar 18th, 2019

Zentrum für Mittelmeerstudien der Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Web)

Venue: Bochum, ZMS
Time: March 21, 2019
Proposals by: February 15, 2019

The connections between populist radical parties, migration, and gender rights attract growing research interest today. It is mainly because the populist radical right parties of Western Europe attempt to revolutionise their party politics from the 1990s and reformulate themselves in liberal and secular terms. On the one hand, in a Europe breaking away from the ideological constraints of the Cold War and leaning towards economic and political liberalism, party politics converged, political identities became increasingly overlapping, and national populisms consequently sought to adapt to the changing political landscape. On the other hand, this ‘liberal’ turn allowed the radical populist right parties to maintain their oppositions to migration by manipulating liberalism and minority rights, as they stigmatised migration to be a phenomenon between receiving liberal democracies in relation to illiberal migrant communities.

Conceptualisations of gender issues by the populist radical right are evidently related to the above-mentioned oppositions to migration in liberal terms. Today, particularly the national populisms of Western Europe present certain rights of gender to be (mehr …)

CfP: Performativity: Pasts, Presents, and Futures (Event, Pisa, 06/2019); DL: 31.01.2019 [REMINDERIN]

Second CIRQUE (Centro Interuniversitario di Ricerca Queer – Inter-University Center for Queer Research) conference

Venue: Pisa
Time: June 28-30, 2019
Proposals by: 31.01.2019

From Gender Trouble onwards, performativity has proved to be a crucial theoretical tool for queer theories and practices. The deontologization of categories, and their unmasking as mere iterations of performances, is at the heart not only of queer’s long-standing and productive antinormative focus, but also of a number of recent theoretical proposals, which question the centrality of antinormativity in queer theory.

The purpose of the conference is to open up a space for a reflection on performativity from a variety of angles and perspectives, and with a variety of aims.

One important aspect are the several possible genealogies of the concept. The canonical Austin-Derrida-Butler lineage is but one of the possible pasts of performativity; alternative ones could include the sociological concepts of “role”, “career”, and “dramaturgy”; Harvey Sacks’s “doing ‘being ordinary’”; the inter- and trans-disciplinary centrality of intersubjectivity; and of course many more. … read more (Web)

CfP: Interrogating Disability and Prostheses (ZS Women, Gender & Research); DL: 25.02.2019

Donnerstag, Januar 10th, 2019

Women, Gender & Research / Kvinder, Køn & Forskning, 2020/1 – Special Issue (Web) Editors: Lisa Käll, Jonathan Mitchell, Tobias Skiveren and Morten H. Bülow

Proposals by: February 25, 2019

The meaning and signifcance of bodily differences, norms of embodiment, and imaginaries about (‚people‘) personhood are central problematics within feminist studies, disability studies and feminist bioethics alike. These problematics relate not only to differential experiences and contexts for living particular lives, but also to associated social and institutional power-relations, hierarchies and policies, as well as to the material and technological circumstances that in different ways shape – limit and make possible – different ways of living.

In this Special Issue the editors invite papers that critically examine diverse phenomena of disability, whether physical or mental, congenital, acquired, or age-related, from feminist perspectives.

In particular, contributors are invited to think critically and creatively about disability in relation to the objects, notions or metaphors of ‚prostheses‘. Prostheses can be thought of in relation to a diverse multitude of phenomena – from wheelchairs to hormone replacement therapy – that in different ways shape and reshape not just functionality, but the very fabric of human lives, particularly in the context of disability. In addition, the prosthetic metaphor is operationalized in a wide range of contexts, evoking a blending of human and technology to triumphantly overcome the ’natural‘ limitations of the ‚ordinary‘ human body.

Conference: Queering Memory: Archives — Arts — Publicities (ALMS Conference, 06/2019, Berlin), DL: 15.01.2019 [REMINDERIN]

Magnus-Hirschfeld-Gesellschaft e.V. (Web)

Ort: Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin
Zeit: 27.-29.06.2019
Einreichfrist: 15.01.2019

What does “queering memory” mean under the political, social and cultural conditions of the present? How can the diversity of queer histories be made visible in these digitized times? ALMS 2019 Berlin will explore the potential for generating publicities for queer archives, libraries, museums and special collections, with a special focus on the arts and artistic interventions. We use the word “queer” to include both same-sex or bi-sexuality and histories of trans identity and gender diversity.

ALMS 2019 invites people from all over the world working in queer archives, libraries, special collections and museums, researching the queer past or generally interested in queer history. Archivists, librarians, museum staff and custodians of special collections from public, private, academic and grassroots institutions or organizations are all highly welcome. Artists and scholars working on any aspect of the queer past, in any region of the world, are encouraged to apply.

Main Topics & Key Issues

Conference: Intersectionality & medieval sources. How does that work?, 17.-19.01.2019, Bayreuth

Freitag, Dezember 28th, 2018

Kristin Skottki, Medieval History, Bayreuth; Nadine Hufnagel and Florian Remele, Medieval German Literature, Bayreuth

Ort: Bayreuth
Zeit: 17.-19.01.2019

The concept of ‘intersectionality’ was developed to describe forms of discrimination in modern times, especially those based on an intersection of gender and race. But may it also be a useful tool for medievalists? The conferences goal is to bring together people from different disciplines, countries, and stages of the academic career to discuss different experiences with forms of inequality in the Middle Ages and in medieval sources/texts, respectively – as well as ‘intersectionality’ as a methodological framework.

CfP: Archives (ZS: Feminist Review); DL: 08.04.2019

Freitag, Dezember 21st, 2018

Feminist Review is calling for articles and Open Space pieces for a themed issue on ‚Archives‘ (Web)

Proposals due: 08.04.2019

This themed issue will focus on the ways in which we encounter the archive and how we might engage archives within feminist, queer and decolonial studies. There has been substantial work in recent years, from different contexts and traditions, on the use of archives. Archives are bound up with the question of whose history is worth preserving.

Scholars in postcolonial and decolonial studies have broadened our understanding of archives by thinking of ‚imperial archives‘ (Richards, 1993; Stoler, 2002) and colonialism as a ‚cultural archive‘ (Said, 1977; Wekker, 2016), providing ways of understanding how the documents left behind by empire were made, distributed and stored, as well as questioning what is meant by a document; to document is an action that is performed in relation to bodies. For feminist scholars, activists and artists, the archive has become an imperative site for preserving, remembering and celebrating feminist work and histories for younger generations (Eichhorn, 2013). In queer studies, archives have been identified as ‚archives of feeling‘ (Cvetkovich, 2003) as well as ‚ephemeral‘ (Halberstam 2005; Kumbier 2014) or ‚make-shift or randomly organized‘ (Muñoz, 1996).

What kinds of approaches can be developed to address these multiple modalities of the ‚archive‘, and what kinds of affective registers, geographies and temporalities are invoked by archival research? As a starting point, we recognise that even archives without official homes, which operate to counter institutional histories, have their own exclusions and omissions. The archive is never a neutral site. Memories, stories and material from Black feminists and (mehr …)
